Glencadam 14 Year Oloroso Cask Finish
Glencadam // Highlands, Scotland
Glencadam has a very long history, dating back to 1825, but single malts have been released under this name only since 2005. The spirit produced at this Highland distillery previously was only sold to premium blends. The water sourced nearby is soft and helps bring out the smooth character of the brand. This whisky has been extra matured in an ex-sherry Oloroso cask for more than one year. As for all whiskies from the core range of Glencadam, this one is 46% and non-chill-filtered.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"This comes straight away with fruits such as peaches, oranges, lemon and hints of apricots. It is quite rich and full-bodied, with a smooth approach without being overly sweet. Compared to the younger 12 year Glencadam, there are maybe fewer layers, but all comes together in a more balanced and even way. The citrus aromas help to bring a freshness while the vanilla and light dried fruits make the tasting very easy. This is works very well and would be welcome as an early evening aperitif. Good value.
